As lawyers for Apple and Samsung made their opening statements in their patent trial in a federal courthouse here, they could not even agree on what the fight was about.
Apple said it was seeking money to stop Samsung from copying its products. But Samsung said the case at heart was about Apple's attempt to stifle consumer choice by taking aim at its main competitor in the phone business -- Google's Android operating system, which powers over one billion devices worldwide, including those made by Samsung.
